Mandy Hemphill is living her dream, running the successful Rose Cottage Cafe in Orchardville, Texas, from the ground floor of a converted, old—and possibly haunted—downtown home. She even had plans to grow her business with a new outdoor patio...if only the mayor wouldn’t have turned her down.
So when the beloved mayor is found murdered, Mandy finds herself among the suspects. And now business at the cafe is dropping faster than a fallen soufflé. How can she prove her innocence and save the Rose Cottage Cafe?
Thankfully Ben, the new owner of The Orchardville Gazette, doesn’t believe she’s guilty. As the two of them set out to find the real killer, they uncover one small-town lie after the next. But the closer they get to learning the truth about who killed the mayor, the more in danger they find themselves.
Big Hair & Buttermilk Pie by Lori Stacy is the first book in the new Rose Cottage Cafe Mystery Series. This was a short, quick read. Mandy is running her dream cafe in a small town. When the mayor winds up dead (and Mandy was not too happy with him at the time) the police are interested in her. This was an enjoyable start to a series, though I felt it could have been a bit more detailed along the way (making it a little longer as well). I was able to figure out whodunit before it was officially revealed, but I still enjoyed the characters and setting and wanted to finish the book. I will read more in this series.
